The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has warned parents to stay away from Computer-based centres and hinted that the board may deploy drones in the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination.

Prof. Oloyede stated this on Thursday at a stakeholders’ meeting held at the Congo Conference Hotel, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in Kaduna State.

He said the board had no fewer than 613 Computer-Based Test centres and that the drones in addition to the CCTV cameras would be deployed to checkmate those planning to perpetrate examination malpractices in all the designated centres for the 2020 UTME.

Oloyede had said during the first day of the meeting on Wednesday that fraudsters were tampering with the CCTV cameras at its centres for the purpose of cheating.

Besides warning parents to stay off, he also warned operators of tutorial classes to steer clear of the 613 CBT centres.

“They are the centres for corruption in examination malpractices in the country,” he added.
